Not for Everyone

Hashers are like furries, weird and creepy.


On-On Gourmets Hash House Harriers

After a recent trail, while eight of us were cooling off at a local pub, our friend Master Meat Finder told us about the weekend she spent escorting a cookbook author who’d been a speaker at Tucson’s annual book fair. The author was Hugo Ortega, and he’d given MMF a copy of his new cookbook, [...]


Harriers MCH3 Mash Trash: 11/22/15

There were only two of us this morning, but that’s a quorum, right?

Flying Booger and Wankers Aweigh met at Wankers’ house on Tucson’s west side for a loop ride over Gates Pass to Saguaro National Park and on to Four Points, where we turned around for Fred’s Arena, Ryan Airfield, and a return trip [...]


HHHistory on Facebook

Shakesprick’s Hashpaedia is no more (boo!). Shakesprick’s A History of the Hash House Harriers is on Facebook (yay!). Here’s a screen grab of the introductory post:

Actually, the Facebook page isn’t intended to replace Hashpaedia. That, if you read Shakesprick’s post above, will happen in book form, some time in 2017. Meanwhile, [...]

Ten-mile trail (twelve with BTs) on the east side, hared by yours truly with logistical help from Pick’n’Flick, H.M.Ho, and Capt. Einstein. Who says you need a big pack to have a good time? Hash Jive, Pearl of the Andes, Loose Nut, and Pick’n’Flick were good company. Here’s a photoblog from yesterday.

The wily [...]


Great Expectations, Revisited

Several years ago, this bit of nastiness showed up on a hash club’s email list:

Ok, I missed my first hash run in Dallas over Thanksgiving and now I’ve heard enough stories to peak my interest. Actually I’ve heard enough stories to make me puke. Running naked through bushes, getting pulled in the middle enough [...]


Harriers MCH3 Mash Trash: 9/27/15

One could argue I shouldn’t write this up as a Harriers MCH3 event, but hey, I was there–the founder and GM of Harriers MCH3–and I did send invitations to all the local members beforehand, so the hell with it, I’m counting it as a Harriers MCH3 event!

What “it” is is The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, [...]
